For smbmount:

What kernel version(s) are you using?

The support for older protocols was removed in smbfs in linux 2.2.16,
with the comment:
  - removed support for old protocol levels. It didn't work anyway and 
    was cluttering things up a lot.

old = anything but win9x/NT/2k, I think.

Does simply switching smbmount from 2.0.7 to 1.9.18 make it work? should
be impossible with 2.2.16, but perhaps not if you are using an earlier
